  1. Probably on the Appetizer menu, though I do no really remember, is Roti Chanai, which is the delectable flatbread they are (were>?) making at the griddle by the door. They make it really really flat, then roll it up and slice it to rounds and serve it with a complicated delicious sauce (probly has peanuts) and this dish alone warrants a visit.

      The roti canai is highly recommended. Ditto the char kway teow and the green beans belachan. You can also get tofu or chicken or shrimp or whatever in a mango shell, which is very good. The chicken with ginger is not really a Malay dish--more Chinese--but is tasty

    2. Agreed, the Roti is a must as an appetizer. I also love the tofu with mango, their green beans, and how they do a whole fried fish.

      1. I loved this place! Ditto on the roti, a must. I can't recall the names of the other dishes we had, but meander through the extensive menu and you won't be disappointed!

        1. I concur on the roti (the "sauce" is kind of like a chicken curry with potatoes). It's amazing. The veggie-stuffed fried tofu appetizer, sadly, was bland and forgettable.

          1. Is Malay Stay Hut (Seattle) closed right now? Whenever I've been nearby lately during normal business hours its looked pretty dark in there.

              I called today and they are closed while they are renovating the kitchen. I didn't get a date for reopening.

              1. re: equinoise

                didn't they close for remodeling just a few years back??

                1. re: oliveoyl

                  They had a fire awhile ago that closed them for an extended period of time.

                    Yeh, 3 or 4 years back. I think it's closed down for good. Bellevue is the best bet. Love their Singapore rice noodle dish too.

                    1. re: sip

                      What makes you think it is closed down for good? As noted, the manager told me they were renovating the kitchen.

                      1. re: equinoise

                        I think that's an error. The poster also said it was 3 or 4 years back and that's definitely incorrect.
